Old Farms Road Bridge Project Update
The contractor has begun working at the Bishop Road intersection with Waterville Road.  This work requires the closure of Bishop there.  Detour signs were placed in advance and local traffic is being routed via Cider Brook Road.  The detour is expected to be in place from May 26th thru June 14th.
The contractor has also determined that he will need to close the eastern portion of Old Farms Road from Tillotson Road to Waterville Road for the period between June 20th and July 3rd this summer for finish paving and related work.  Advanced warning and detour signs will be posted in the coming weeks.
The center pier of the old bridge has yet to be removed but will be as soon as the river recedes.  Boaters using the river can currently traverse either side of the work area but are being warned to stay away from the center portion of the river where there is temporary sheeting in place.  A sign has been placed there alerting river users of this.  Once the river recedes, workers will remove the pier, which will require that boaters stay even further from the area.  More information will be provided at that time.
